British Taekwondo National Poomsae Championships 2018

DTKD had a great time at the British Taekwondo National Poomsae Championships which were hosted at East London University in Docklands.  The team spent the morning watching the very high standard of the traditional Poomsae category in the morning.  After Lunch Master Naraine and Gabbi took to the mats in the traditional Poomsae competition. They both did extremely well placing in the top 10 given the very stiff competition.   

It was then a long wait until the Freestyle section of the competition. As these are performed to music we had to wait for all the traditional Poomsae to be finished before they could start the Freestyle.  First up was Aidan in the U17 Male individual category, Aidan placed 1st winning Gold for the second year in a row. Second up was Jemma in the U17 Female individual category, Jemma placed 2nd winning silver.  Followed by Molly who placed joint 3rd with five other girls in the U17 Female category. Finally, we got to see the amazing performance from Aidan and Hannah in the mixed U17 pair category, They came 1st, winning gold for the second year in a row,   You can see all the DTKD routines below along with a selection of the other competitors. 

It was a very long day but everyone enjoyed themselves and took away some great ideas ready for the next competition.
